Pressed in Gethsemane

The Messiah (one anointed with oil) prayed in an olive grove at a place called Olive Press on a hill called Mount of Olives. He felt intense pressure like an olive in an olive press.


Yeshua concluded His seder and farewell discourse in the upper room of a house in Jerusalem’s upper city. He went out “as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him.” They did not return to Bethany that night because the Torah required those keeping Passover to remain in Jerusalem on the night of their seder. In those days, many Passover pilgrims camped on the face of the Mount of Olives. It was our Master’s custom to stay at a particular spot on the Mount of Olives during the pilgrimage festivals. “Yeshua had often met there with His disciples” (John 18:2).The Mount of Olives is a two-and-a-half-mile spur of mountainous ridge running parallel to Jerusalem’s eastern wall line, separated from the city by the deep ravine of the Kidron Valley. The Mount of Olives plays an important part in messianic prophecy. According to the prophecies of Ezekiel, the Shechinah departs and enters from Jerusalem by means of “the mountain which is east of the city.” In the future, the Messiah will appear on the Mount of Olives to rescue Jerusalem: “In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east” (Zechariah 14:4).The Sages of the Mishnah called the Mount of Olives “The Mount of Anointing (Har HaMeshichah, הר המשחה).” The messianic expectation associated with the mountain explains why devout Jews of Jerusalem favor the slopes of the Mount of Olives for burial. The resurrection of the dead will start there.Today, tombs cover the much of the western face of the mountain, but in the days of the Master, trees covered the slopes.

The Master and His disciples pitched their camp in a grove of olive trees near the foot of the mount and the Kidron valley. The grove was called Gat Shamnei (גת שמני), which means “Olive Press.” An olive press probably stood within a cave in the midst of the grove, and the disciples camped in the cave.

The name of the location hints toward the meaning of the events that took place there that night. One cannot overlook the convergence of symbolism when the Mashiach (Anointed One) prays in the midst of an olive grove, in a place called the “Olive Press,” on the slopes of the hill of messianic expectation called the “Mount of Anointing.”

In the days of the Master, the owner of the grove procured olive oil from his olives by crushing them into a mash in a stone mill and then pressing them under the intense weight of a beam-press to force the oil out. The olive imagery suggests the rite of anointing whereby the title mashiach (“anointed one,” משיח) is derived. As the Master prayed that night, he came under an intense pressure that can be compared to what an olive in an olive press must feel. He said, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death” (Mark 14:34). Luke 22:44 relates, “And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.” (Click to Source)

Garden of Eden FOUND? How archaeologist discovered ‘true location’ after Jerusalem find

THE Garden of Eden’s location may have finally been found thanks to a discovery by an archaeologist in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, a documentary claimed.

By CALLUM HOARE
The Garden of Eden, also referred to as Paradise, is the biblical garden of God described in the Book of Genesis about the creation of man. The narrative surrounds the apparent first man and woman – Adam and Eve – placed in the garden to guard the Tree of Life, before being tempted by a serpent to eat from a forbidden tree – a move that saw them expelled. Many have long searched for its location, based on clues given in the biblical text, but the age-long question may have finally been uncovered.

Archaeologist Jodi Magness revealed during Morgan Freeman’s documentary: “The Story of God”, how a discovery in a church in Jerusalem led her to believe she has the answer.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in the Old City and is believed to be the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified and later resurrected – in a place known as “Calvary”, or “Golgotha”.

Dr Magness revealed how this was also the apparent burial place for Adam.

She said in 2017: “[The clue comes from] underneath the rock of Golgotha, the rocky outcrop which Christians believe Jesus was crucified on.

The Garden of Eden, or Paradise, becomes conceptualised as the spot where the presence of God dwells

Jodi Magness

“Below is the chapel of Adam and there is a tradition which goes way back in Christianity which connects this spot to Adam – the first man.

“When Jesus was crucified on top of the rock above us, his blood flowed down through a crack in the rock.

“And Adam, the first man, lay buried underneath, but when Jesus’ blood flowed onto him, he was resurrected.”

This idea contradicts the description given in the Bible.

The Book of Genesis clearly lists four rivers in association with the garden, Pishon, Gihon, Chidekel and Phirat, suggesting its location was in southern Mesopotamia, now known as Iraq.

However, Dr Magness detailed how this may actually support a theory she has.

She added: “Well, the version of the story that ended up in the Book of Genesis seems to place the Garden of Eden somewhere in Mesopotamia.

“But I think Adam had a very special connection with Jerusalem.

“The Garden of Eden, or Paradise, becomes conceptualised as the spot where the presence of God dwells.

“In early Judaism and the time of Jesus the presence of God dwelled in the temple, and hence why Jerusalem was conceived of as Eden [at that time].”

Dr Magness was asked if she believed the Garden of Eden is actually a metaphor for the beginning of life and is, in fact, wherever God’s presence is.

She responded: “Well, yes – of course.

“Adam was the first human and, in Hebrew, the word ‘Adam’ means ‘man’.

“Also, if you take off the ‘a’, you are left with ‘dam’, in Hebrew that means ‘blood’.

“And if you add ‘ah’ to the end, ‘adamah’ means land.” (Click to Source)

Pope in Morocco urges Jerusalem be protected for all religions

Joint statement with king during visit to Rabat declares Israel’s capital the ‘common patrimony’ of Christians, Jews and Muslims

30 March 2019, 11:28 pm

ope Francis and Moroccan King Mohammed VI called on Saturday for Jerusalem to be preserved as a symbol of peaceful coexistence where Jews, Muslims and Christians can be allowed to worship freely.

Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country.

The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities.

In a joint statement, the two leaders said Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the followers of the three monotheistic religions,” during the pontiff’s visit to Rabat.

“The specific multi-religious character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of Jerusalem… must be protected and promoted,” they said in the declaration released by the Vatican.

The statement contrasted sharply with a joint communique put out by Mohammed and Jordan’s King Abdullah on Thursday vowing to safegaurd Jerusalem against attempts to change its Islamic or Christian identity.

The statement Thursday made no mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.

Improving relations with other religions has been a priority for the Argentine pontiff, whose papacy has been marred by a wave of child sex abuse allegations against clergy.

Addressing thousands of Moroccans who had braved the rain to attend the welcome ceremony, Francis said it was “essential to oppose fanaticism.”

He stressed the need for “appropriate preparation of future religious guides”, ahead of meeting trainee imams later on Saturday.

Catholics are a tiny minority in the country where 99 percent of the population is Muslim. The king is revered across West Africa as “commander of the faithful.”

Speaking at the ceremony at the Tour Hassan mosque and nearby mausoleum in Rabat, Francis defended “freedom of conscience” and “religious freedom.”

“Live as brothers,” he told a crowd of around 25,000, after arriving from the airport in his Popemobile, passing rows of Moroccan and Vatican City flags.

An estimated 12,000 well-wishers packed the esplanade outside the partly-finished 12th century mosque, some in traditional dress, according to Moroccan officials.

Some 130,000 people across Rabat watched the first stage of the pope’s visit, which was beamed onto giant screens, officials said.

Francis will also visit an institute where around 1,300 students are studying to become imams and preachers, teaching “moderate Islam” and backed by the king.

“It’s a very significant event, the first time that a pope is welcomed to an institute for the training of imams,” said Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti.

Rabat stepped up security ahead of the first papal visit to the North African country since John Paul II in 1985.

Buildings were repainted, streets decorated and lawns manicured for the pope’s two-day visit. (Click to Source)

DIVIDE AND CONQUER: POPE FRANCIS MEETS WITH MUSLIM KING IN MOROCCO AND DECLARES THAT JERUSALEM SHOULD NEVER BELONG SOLELY TO THE JEWS

Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country. The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics was invited by King Mohammed VI for the sake of “inter-religious dialogue,” according to Moroccan authorities. The statement Thursday made no mention of any Jewish link to Jerusalem.

March 30, 2019

Pope Francis and Moroccan King Mohammed VI called on Saturday for Jerusalem to be preserved as a symbol of peaceful coexistence where Jews, Muslims and Christians can be allowed to worship freely.

Just like everything that comes out of the mouth of the Roman pope, it was a tiny nugget of truth encompassed about with layers and layers of lies. Yes, Jerusalem is claimed by Jews, Christians and Muslims, absolutely, but of those three only the first two are mentioned in the bible as being ordained by God. The Muslims are the bastard children of Abraham, and are specifically mentioned in the Bible as have none inheritance. The children of Abraham through Hagar are to be “cast out” as we see here:

“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.”Galatians 4:22,23,30 (KJV)

So that takes care of Lie #1 of Pope Francis, let’s move on to the second whopper he told in Morocco. This idea that Jerusalem cannot belong solely to the Jews because it “has to be shared” is another oft-repeated fact that is just not so. The bible says  that the Battle of Armageddon, seen below in Joel 3, is fought over the fact that somebody, namely Antichrist, has “parted” God’s land of Israel in general, and Jerusalem in particular. That’s right, Jerusalem belongs to God.

“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJV)

Isn’t it funny how whenever the Roman pontiff talks about Jerusalem, he never mentions that it is the capital of Israel and as such is not up to be shared by whoever feels like grabbing a piece of it? He speaks of Jerusalem like a commodity that can be bought and sold, and indeed it will be. By Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

Pope in Morocco urges Jerusalem be protected for all religions

FROM THE TIME OF ISRAEL: Pope Francis joined the Moroccan monarch in declaring the city the “common patrimony” of Christians, Jews and Muslims, on the first day of a visit to the North African country.

148 nations disavow Jewish ties to Jerusalem, Temple Mount

Posted by Staff Writer on February 14, 2019 at 7:00 pm

261103-310x217

The UN General Assembly in New York on Friday approved six anti-Israel resolutions including two that ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount.

The primary resolution on Jerusalem, that passed 148-11 with 14 abstentions, also disavowed Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem.
Both that text and a second more global one on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which passed 156-8, with 12 abstentions, spoke of Judaism’s most holy site – The Temple Mount – solely by its Muslim name of al-Haram al-Sharif.

Be the first to know –

The votes comes as Israel is working to shore up international support for its sovereignty in Jerusalem.

A third text, which was approved 99-10 with 66 abstentions,

The United States, Canada and Australia voted against all six resolutions, which are the first batch of some 20 resolutions that the UNGA annually passes against Israel.

“We live in a time of many crises, crises that are raging around the Middle East and around the world. It is a shame that rather than addressing these crises, the UN passes so many biased resolutions,” said Israeli Deputy Permanent Representative Noa Furman.

She said she was particularly concerned by the two resolutions that ignored Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount.
“This omission was deliberate. It shows yet another instance of the Palestinian refusal to recognize the proven historical connection between Judaism, Christianity, the Temple Mount and Jerusalem as a whole.

“The international community must stop participating in such a blatant denial of history. You must not permit these blatant attempts to delegitimize Israel,” Furman said.

The European Union, which supported both texts, warned it could stop doing so unless more include language was used to reference holy sites in Jerusalem.

Speaking on behalf of the EU, the Austrian representative said the EU stresses “the need for language on the holy sites of Jerusalem to reflect the importance and historical significance of the holy sites for the three monotheistic religions.”

It added, “future choice of language may affect the EU’s collective support for the resolutions.”

PLO Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour thanked UN member states for their support of texts that reference a two-state resolution to the conflict based on the pre-1967 lines with east Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state.

This “global consensus, which all of us have worked for, is still the cornerstone of finding a just and lasting peace to the conflict.”
US representative Leslie Ordeman, who is deputy political coordinator, also spoke out against the texts.

“We are disappointed that despite messages of support for reform, member states continue to single out Israel with these resolutions.

“As the United States has repeatedly made clear, this dynamic is unacceptable. Again, we see resolutions that are quick to condemn all manner of Israeli actions, but say almost nothing about Palestinian terrorist attacks against innocent civilians. This is particularly acute now, when the rocket attacks on November 12 saw more projectiles fired on a single day than on any day since 2014.”

Both Israel and the US took issue in particular with the two resolutions passed Friday that continued to support the work of the “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People” and the “Division for Palestinian Rights.”

“The Palestinians are the only actor in the UN system with a dedicated division within the UN Secretariat. The message that it sends is that the Palestinians never need to come back to the negotiating table – they can rely on flawed and biased mechanisms, such as these, to push their agenda,” he said.

They Were Sacrificing Babies, Then and Now.

February 16, 2019

molech

I’m asked often, how do you know there will be another European Jewish Holocaust?  The most troubling thing about that question is where these people who ask such a question live.  It’s no longer necessary for one to be a Prophet to see what is happening around the world with the aggressive takeover by Islam in so many countries.  Now we even see it in the US Congress with four Muslims elected to have full security clearance, so there goes the security of the US with such Islamic fanatics being approved for such an official status.

As far as the US and the spread of Islam is concerned, it started many years ago, with the Saudis funding the American public school system. You see they know, just like Hitler knew, if you want to take over a country you start with the kids even in grade school and all the way through colleges and universities with left wing insane political propaganda and political correctness. Then see how many false and hateful lies they can repeat until they are believed by the young minds searching for a cause to dedicate their lives to.

 

Well the day has arrived that these kids are no longer kids, but your new political leaders and they are convinced Socialism is the way of the future for the US because that is what their socially sick professors taught them.  Young boys and girls have been brainwashed to believe Homosexuality is just an alternative lifestyle and even in many American public schools they are encouraged to try it.  Boys are told that masculinity is no longer accepted in today’s society and they can become a girl, and the girls are told that they can be either male or female just by saying so. I wonder how many would disagree with me if I said the above describes a very sick society.  Maybe one step further, a sin sick oneand we should remember Sodom and Gomorrah.  I should add before going on, this is not only a description of America but Europe and the rest of the world as well.

 

Keep in mind that it happened gradually in Nazi Germany.  Jewish homes and businesses were attacked and were pasted with signs identifying them as Jews.  It was the beginning of the process that killed 6 million Jews including 1.5 million Jewish children.  That same Nazi spirit is alive and well in Islam today.  They actually enjoy fulfilling the Devil’s commands by killing the Infidels known in their un-holy book the Quran as the “people of the Book” (Jews and Christians).  There have been events in the recent past where a “Palestinian” sniper had the opportunity to kill a mother or a child in a stroller and they took the shot at the infant.  I’ve lost count of the times “Palestinian” terrorists have attacked and killed Israeli kids in school buses.

 

Something has come to my mind about a time when evil people kill children.  During the time of Yeshua in Jerusalem they were sacrificing babies by burning them to death and throwing them off the cliff walls in the Valley of Hinnom in Jerusalem.

 

KJV 2-Kings 23:10 and he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

 

According to the Hebrew Bible, the Valley of Hinnom was used as a place for worshipers in Canaan to burn their own children alive as sacrifices to the gods Moloch and Moloch. One section of the Hinnom Valley was called Topheth (also spelled Tophet or Topeth), where the children were slaughtered.  Moloch is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice. The name of this deity is also sometimes spelled Molech, Milcom, or Malcam. The name Moloch results from a dysphemic-vocalisation in the Second Temple period of a theonym based on the root mlk, “king”.

 

The Messiah’s return is now expected very soon, for there can be no doubt we are in the end times and His return is very near.  Once again we (humans) are killing more babies then ever in the history of the world making laws to kill them even at the very moment of birth.  Yeshua came the first time when they were killing babies. Once again the world is killing babies by the millions, (His creations).

 

The Jews of France have received letters telling them to leave or be killed. This is the same tactic the Nazis used in the 30’s and shortly thereafter they started loading them up in cattle cars and systematically murdering them. That time now seems to be a real possibility of a reoccurrence in Islam controlled Europe. Even the mass recruiting of the native Europeans through fear and other means.

As you read this the Jews of Europe can simply pack up and leave. Many are returning to Israel as life becomes unbearable for a Jew, and it soon will be for Christians as well.  The door is open to get on a plane and fly to Israel, and be received with open arms as returning Jews.

 

Things are about to suddenly change. The missiles will fill the skies over Israel and all the Middle East.  At that same time Europeans will once again blame the Jews and the Holocaust will begin once again and Jews will be hunted down and killed for the terrible crime of being a Jew.  There is nothing that would please the Devil more than to see every Jew killed. He knows his demise will take place in Israel at the hand of the greatest of all the Jews.

 

For those who have been with me for many years know I have been saying these things would happen and today we are seeing them take place.

 

It is time now for us to be ready to rescue those Jews who did not get out in time or refused to leave their businesses and security of what they believe is theirs to protect, but they find out the lives of their families are more important than the business and wealth.

 

This ministry is not ready and there is much to be accomplished in preparation to set sail with the boats we now have.  A larger boat is desperately needed but if that isn’t possible for us then the two boats we now have must be made ready.

In the past few days Joel had to replace all the ropes on the sailing boat because they were not safe.  We are constantly working to keep them in good condition. Arrangements for communications and contacts need to be re-established and confirmed.  A special communication device I will keep secret for now must be put into the hands of the right persons in Jewish communities and elsewhere in Cyprus, and the Greek Islands, possibly even Turkey.

Pray for the peace of Jeusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers.  Pray for this ministry and your part in it. (Click to Source)

Rabbi: Strange Mist on Temple Mount Is War on Spiritual Plane [VIDEO]

I wipe away your sins like a cloud, Your transgressions like mist— Come back to Me, for I redeem you. Isaiah 44:22 (The Israel Bible™)

mist_tm

An unexplained mist begins to rise on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. (Credit: Joshua Wander via Facebook)

On Sunday, a group of Jews praying on the Mount of Olives witnessed a large white cloud rise up out of the ground from the Temple Mount.

The phenomenon was recorded by Josh Wander, a Mount of Olives resident. A sunrise prayer session was organized on a plaza overlooking the Temple Mount for the holiday of Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the week-long holiday of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).

“Just after sunrise, I was recording a Facebook live video of the prayers when I panned my camera to the Temple Mount,” Wander told Breaking Israel News. “All of a sudden, I noticed a cloud or fog that erupted from the northeastern corner of the mount. It seemed to be coming from the area which was designated for women in the time of the Temple and the eastern gateway, which confused me, since I know that today, it is an orchard of olive trees and there is normally no activity there.”

The balcony of Wander’s home overlooks the Temple Mount so he is intimately familiar with the scenery. He is also a regular visitor to the site and said he has never seen anything like this before.

“It was billowing up so I thought some Arabs might be burning branches,” Wander said. “But it was much too early for Arabs to be on the Temple Mount and I didn’t see any Arabs there before, during, or after and certainly no fire. It was not just a thin mist and the video doesn’t really convey the presence of the mist.”

When he lived in the United States, Wander served as a pilot in the Air Force Auxiliary where he was trained to identify clouds. Meteorology and identifying clouds is an essential part of pilot training.

“There was very little wind and the smoke just seemed to crawl across the mount toward the Dome of the Rock,” Wander said. “It seemed to come out of a specific spot but after several minutes, it seemed to be rising up from multiple sources in the same general area.”

Wander reluctantly described the mist with a word he rarely uses.

“It looked supernatural,” he said. Not trusting his own eyes, Wander asked the people around him if they could also see the mist. Most were immersed in their holiday prayers and had not noticed but when it was pointed out, they confirmed the mist’s presence. The phenomenon lingered on the ground around the golden dome for more than 20 minutes.

“I am certainly not the kind of person who sees signs in nature,” Wander said. “But this was just too out of the ordinary to ignore. It looked eery and the location, the site of the Holy of Holies, is too significant.”

When Rabbi Yosef Berger heard of the sighting, he responded with equanimity.

“If you had told me that it happened any other day of the year, I would not have assigned it any significance,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News. “But to have this cloud appear on Hoshana Rabbah is highly significant and makes me happy, knowing the geula (redemption) is at hand.”

The rabbi cited Midrash Talpiot, a collection of homiletic and oral teachings compiled by Elijah ben Solomon Abraham ha-Kohen of Smyrna in the 17th century.

“It is written in the Midrash Talpiot that the War of Gog and Magog will begin three hours before the dawn on Hoshana Rabbah, the battle will last three hours, and then the Moshiach will begin to appear,” Rabbi Berger said. “Of course this war is accompanied by flames and smoke as was hinted at in Psalms.”

Hashem is in its midst, it will not be toppled; by daybreak…He puts a stop to wars throughout the earth, breaking the bow, snapping the spear, consigning wagons to the flames. Psalms 46:6-10

“It very well could be that a major battle was being waged on the Temple Mount on the spiritual plane and the only part of it that we could see was the smoke,” Rabbi Berger said. “It has been clear all year that a war is being waged for the Temple Mount.”

The rabbi noted that a record 28,000 Jews ascended to the Temple Mount in the past year and an additional 5,000 visited the site during the recent holidays.

“Smoke is only one aspect of the war, an illusion that we can see with our eyes while the real battle is being waged on planes we cannot see,” Berger said. “The real battle goes much deeper. We may be seeing other aspects of the battle in the near future.”

“During Sukkot we read about Gog and Magog in the Haftarah (a section of the Bible – usually from the Prophets – read in the synagogue that is thematically linked to the Torah reading). On Pesach, we read as the Haftarah Ezekiel’s vision of the Dry Bones,” Rabbi Berger said. “The war begins on the last day of Sukkot and the resurrection begins on Pesach.”

Rabbi Berger noted that Hoshana Rabbah is the day of judgment for the nations.

“We are seeing a realignment among the nations concerning Israel,” Berger said. “The United Nations is going through changes and may cease to exist. In England, America, Germany, and so many countries, their politics is being determined by how they relate to Israel and the Bible. This is a precursor to what will happen soon, what is already taking place on levels we cannot see.” (Click to Source)
